Mike Ditka SpeakerThe Chicago Bears have announced that they will retire Pro Football Hall of Famer and former team head coach Mike Ditka’s Number 89 jersey. The number will officially be retired during halftime of the Bears game versus the Dallas Cowboys on Dec. 9’s  on their Monday Night Football matchup.

“Mike Ditka embodies the spirit of everything the Bears are about,” chairman George H. McCaskey said. “He’s an icon. The last time we won the championship Mike Ditka was our coach and the last time we won before that Mike Ditka was a player. The organization knew it was the right thing to do.”

Ditka was a part of the Bears last two NFL titles as he played for Chicago from 1961-66 and coached the team from 1982-92. He is the only player in the NFL’s modern era to win a title with the same team as both a player (1963) and head coach (1985). After being selected by the Bears with the fifth overall pick in the 1961 draft, Ditka revolutionized the NFL’s tight end position.
